Health disparities across the US can negatively affect outcomes of cancer patients; 76% of oncologists agree. Yet, over 64% of oncologists said they could use more education on the topic.1 In this panel discussion, we will review the current state challenges in achieving health equity in oncology, the expected benefits and impacts on patient outcomes, and how technology can help providers more fully understand their patients to deliver more equitable cancer care.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the current state problem and vision for health equity in oncology
  • Examine the challenges of addressing health equity
  • Review the benefits of health equity on patient outcomes, access to care, and financial impact in oncology
  • Understand working solutions to help oncology physician practices deliver more equitable healthcare to cancer patients
